Inside the food hall on the second floor of the Tsukiji Uogashi building, you'll find diners at Odayasu Jyogai enjoying heaping plates of amber-tinged katsu (crumbed and deep-fried food) pretty much as soon as it opens at 9am. Of course, there's tonkatsu – tender, juicy pork loin – on the menu, but to keep with the seafood theme of Tsukiji, we'd recommend opting for one of the seafood katsu plates.
The moriawase (¥2,050) is only available at the Tsukiji location, a combination of a giant prawn, scallop and crab croquette served with house-made tartare sauce. Sets come piled with freshly shredded cabbage and a bowl of miso soup. Essential katsu condiments, like Japanese-style barbecue sauce, karashi mustard and assorted pickles, are freely available on the front counter. The menu also offers a ¥1,300 tonkatsu sandwich and a set meal with two fried prawns on rice (¥1,400).
